Picture Perfect Designs

This semester Peter has been in a class called IBC, basically you take 4 classes all at the same time and those are supposed to be the only classes you take for the semester. The classes all work together for business majors and kind of make one collaborative class. At the beginning of the semester everyone is put into groups/ companies. They objective of the class is to build a successful business. Most of the businesses stay on campus and try to sell to students. Peter's company is called Picture Perfect Designs. This Picture is of their booth on campus, Peter is very proud of it because he designed it.
Their company chose to do Mod Podge pictures. You can choose to get your own personalized pictures or they had some of Temples and pictures of Christ that you could just buy right then. They were very successful, Peter is so excited to be done with it because he was always Mod Podging pictures for the company. It was good that they were so successful though because there are some companies that did really bad and didn't even break even with their fundings. I'm really proud of Peter and all of the hard work he put into his classes this semester.

Happy 4th of July!

To celebrate the fourth, we headed down to Utah to spend time with family. We had lunch at Blue Lemon with Jason, Shanna and the kids. Have I ever mentioned how much I love all of my nieces and nephews? We walked into Blue Lemon and Joshua yelled "Peter!" and Livi yelled "Tara!" and gave us big hugs. Nieces and nephews are the best! I also loved seeing Shanna and Jason. I can always use some girl talk and Peter loves talking to Jason about guy stuff, (water sports seems to be a popular topic this time of year). Now that they are living in Utah we see them so much more, we love it!

Seriously, I adore this little girl!

The rest of the weekend was spent with the Hibbards. We were excited because there is a good sized group of Hibbards that live in Utah and we had plans to get all together for the holiday. Peter was excited to see his extended family and I was excited to meet a few new faces. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures from the actual 4th of july, but we all had such a fun day! This included:

A water fight
Ultimate frisbee
Delicious food
Homemade rootbeer
Jet skiing
and of course watching fireworks

This weekend reminded us how grateful we are to live in this beautiful country and how blessed we are to have amazing families. 
Happy 4th of July everyone!
